People Living with HIV/AIDS

How We Can Help

We serve people who are recently diagnosed with HIV, have been living with HIV for years, or are long-time survivors. Our comprehensive services are designed to support both your physical and mental health – and meet you where you are in your journey. We also provide assistance with housing, food, and employment, which are crucial to staying healthy. Most services require that you enroll as a client.

Terry Brenneis Hub for Long-Term Survivors
One of the largest communities we serve are people 50 years and older. Many people in this demographic are long-term survivors and have been living with HIV for decades. We take a comprehensive approach to addressing the needs of long-term survivors with a focus on enhancing social support networks. We also oversee a leading research program to understand the unique needs and challenges facing older adults as they age with HIV.
